Runway


Just like its opulent setting, the beauty looks on the Milan Fashion Week Spring 2017 runways made a major case that more, is in fact more. Dolce & Gabbana’s bejeweled, flower garden headpieces and Fendi’s punky studded hair clips and glitter lips are just a few extravagant examples of the fashion shows’ beauty looks that […]

I am sorry, dear readers, to report from London Fashion Week that a nasty virus has been going around the front rows. Editors here are falling like flies, coughing into their programs, their eyes glazed over with congestion. Or that might just be the stupor of having seen so many clothes festooned with decorative embroideries, […]

You can be an Oscar de la Renta bride. And you, and you, and you. For the brand’s spring 2017 bridal collection, designer Peter Copping says that the starting point stemmed from “thinking about different women, different sorts of brides, different ways of getting married.” “It was very important that the collection was a wide […]

For an industry that heavily emphasizes novelty and “the next big thing”, fashion is also surprisingly nostalgic. Proof of this? Look no further than the spring/summer 2016 collections. Many designers were inspired by past decades—even centuries—and the iconic women who defined that time period. We highlighted our favorite muses of the season, below, along with how their […]

Everyone knows Stella McCartney throws a good party, but this… this was something different.

I don’t mean The Beatles had been […]

So I tagged along. Alaïa’s dinners are […]

Giorgio Armani, Donatella Versace, Alberta Ferretti, Giambattista Valli, and Brunello Cucinelli, despite the pressures of presenting their fall collections in a matter of days (or in some cases, hours), marched into a ballroom in Milan’s Palazzo Reale for a little lunch on Wednesday.   It was a particularly rare occasion in Italian fashion – so […]

Rihanna—what can’t the woman pull off? Her sartorial power is so great, so unapologetic in its outrageousness, she can make being nearly nude (you know, except for a mesh encasing made of something like 200,000-plus Swarovski crystals) the most glamorous look ever. So when you factor in actual clothing, you know to expect the wildly unexpected.  A leather jacket isn’t just a leather […]

Madison Square Garden? Been there, done that. Kanye West not only staged his Yeezy Season 3 show at the famed venue earlier this year but also performed there as recent as Tuesday night, where, in true Yeezus fashion, he hovered above the mosh pit on a floating stage at his Saint Pablo concert. So of course—of course—‘Ye would leave Manhattan altogether […]

There’s always an undercurrent of strength that runs in designer Donatella Versace’s creations—only a girl who’s comfortable in her own skin can really (and self-assuredly) rock a Versace signature that boasts thigh-high slits and skin-revealing cut-outs slashed every which way. For her spring 2016 couture collection, that kind of strength was greater than ever, manifesting itself in sporty-sexy […]
